Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package Dated For PS3, PC
The Stimulus Package for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 hit hard last week when it launched for the Xbox 360, but PlayStation 3 and PC owners were left out in the cold.
Even so, over 1 million Xbox Live users downloaded the Package in the first 24 hours of its availability and before the week was over, 2.5 million fans had their hands on the expansion content. But it won't be long before Microsoft's temporary exclusivity on the Stimulus Package ends; Activision has announced that both the PS3 and PC versions will be available in North America on May 4 (May 5 for Europe and Australia). It'll retail for $14.99 and if you don't already know, it features all new maps: Bailout, which puts you in a high-rise apartment complex of sorts; Storm, which includes an intimidating industrial setting, and Salvage, which is a snow-covered junkyard. Lastly, this large expansion boasts two very popular holdovers from the original Modern Warfare: Crash and Overgrown. So for fans of MW2, this is essentially a must-have. The question is, are you one of the many who will download it on day one?
If you are, you'll probably be interested in the Call of Duty 7 unveiling, which should happen later this month. CoD is one of those franchises that is now firmly entrenched, like it or not.
